East Meon

Arriving back in the village after a 6 mile circular walk. This picturesque Hampshire village, the highest in the Meon Valley is surrounded by the South Downs National Park. East Meon may have started life somewhere between 400 and 600 AD and there are bronze age burial barrows within the Parish which date back to around 2000 BC. The village was part of a Royal Manor belonging first to King Alfred the Great and later to William the Conqueror as recorded in The Domesday Survey of 1086. East Meon has an interesting history illustrated by a number of ancient buildings in the village. The Norman Church of All Saints sits in the shelter of Park Hill. The Church contains a fine 12th century black marble Tournai font, one of only four in Hampshire. Opposite the Church is the old Court House, with a medieval hall dating from the late 14th century.
